The Road to Recovery.

All the surgeries are over! Day 11 in the hospital. Nicholas had his last "procedure" this morning, the plastic surgeon unwrapped everything, did a clean out and bandaged him back up. We are out of ICU, and back in a regular room. He is in good spirits, the Life Care nurse brought him a X-box to play with in this bed.  Tomorrow  Nicholas can get up out of bed and "dangle" his foot for ten minutes every hour, this is a blessing, because he has been flat on his back for for 4 days. He is managing his pain now with 1 pill every 8 hours, down from a continuous drip and push button sedation. WE ARE POSSIBLY OUT OF HERE IN 3 DAYS!  Nicholas and his neighbor Prince, are going to have a play date tomorrow, the nurses are going to take both boys, beds and all (they are both bed bound)  up to a special room where there is a play station set up on a giant movie screen. He is very excited to meet Prince in person, we have become very close with him and his mother through both the boys numerous surgeries. 
    Keep Nicholas and Prince lifted up in prayer,
Cecil and Alisha Vossler

  1. You don't know me, but I saw your article in the news, and have been following the blog since. I just wanted to let your family and Nicholas know that I am praying for a fast recovery, and a growing faith through all of this!
